(Peterson-AP) -- Firefighters are trying to control a fire in Morgan County.

US Forest officials say the fire's only burned eight acres so far, but the fire's been hard to get to.

The fire's about one-third the way up the Farmington Peak Mountain and they couldn't get an engine up there. A fire crew spent the night out on the line and are working on the fire today.

It's burning about a mile away from the Wasatch-Cache National Forest and about five miles west of Peterson.

Officials are investigating the cause of the fire. They say there's been no recent lightning and there are a few A-T-V trails that go up through there, so it may have been started by humans.

The fires's not controlled yet, but officials say they hope for containment sometime today.
